Raglan Fishing Report - 8/9/23

‘Puka and snapper on the chew

The increase in daylight hours and some settled patches of weather have allowed fishing in all depths and tides.

Currently, the fish are getting caught in close – around 15 metres or less – using burley trails and straylined baits. The bigger trophy snapper and nice catches of gurnard have been caught using this tried-and-true inshore method. The kahawai are also in the shallower depths, too.

‘Bin-ups’ of nice 40cm to 50cm snapper are being had out deeper in 70 metres and beyond. There's still the odd toothy vermin in a catch of these nice snapper, with tarakihi, trevally, and gurnard also turning up when the snapper bite slows a little.

Out wide on the shelf, there have been some good hauls of h?puku on the edge of the shed, with most models being in the 15kg to 20kg range.
